The mid 1800's is a tough time to be a lady or gentleman. Oscar and Lucinda are meant for each other, but they have to fight through society's rules and Oscar's fear of water. The scene of the glass church floating down the river is pretty cool.

[font=Century Gothic]"Oscar and Lucinda" is about two young people, Oscar and Lucinda, who start out on opposite sides of the world in the 19th century. They have a mania in common: gambling.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Oscar(Ralph Fiennes, doing a spot-on impression of Juliet Stevenson) is a troubled divinity student at Oxford. One day, a fellow student drags him to the racecourse and Oscar wins his first bet. He continues to do well with gambling; donating most of what he wins to charity. But terribly wracked with guilt, he chooses missionary work in New South Wales, Australia.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Lucinda(Cate Blanchett) is an heiress from rural Australia. Almost on a whim, she decides to purchase a glass works with her inheritance. She is introduced to cardplaying by her social acquaintances and is hooked.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic][/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Oscar and Lucinda" is a beautiful, well-made allegorical movie about the debate between a fixed universe and what chance has to play in our lives. Oscar has a firm belief in a higher power but he still gambles. It's a contradiction when he introduces chance into a world he believes has been designed by a higher power. Water has a symbolic part to play in this movie, too. In Christianity, water is seen as a cleansing agent and is used for baptism but Oscar has a raging fear of it due to him associating it with his mother's death. The movie is also helped along by fine support from Tom Wilkinson and Ciaran Hinds. [/font]

Odd, overlong character drama which during the later stages echoes Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo. I lost interest in Oscar's decline as he's not really a person who earns much empathy. Cate Blanchett leaves a mark as Lucinda though.

A fascinating movie.

Saw it after having read the book, and I got a lot more of the emotional impact of the story from the book. The movie was pretty visually, and I liked Fiennes and Blanchett in their roles, but really didn't feel the full impact on film.

May 09 - Terrible! Had a hard time watching it to the end. I feel bad why Fiennes and Blanchett play in this.

eccentric is the key word here. I wish the tone was less so. Fiennes and Blanchett are the 19th century Benny and Joon. The film is too aloof for the weight of addiction, murder, and penitance.

A look into how the lives of two unlikely people come together through their shared love and obsession for gambling. Through each other they find strength and faith, but it is not without its price. Fiennes and Blanchett are wonderful together.

Very, very deep movie and quite moving. You will think about this one long after the movie is over.

Nothing much to recommend, honestly.

Aesthetically pleasing to the eye and compelling in more ways than one. Cate Blanchett and Ralph Fiennes work extremely well together in this tale about love, faith and chance.

Oscar and Lucinda is a beautiful film. It is about an Anglican priest and an Australian heiress met on a ship in the mid-1800s. Ralph Fiennes and Cate Blanchett give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written and sweet. Gillian Armstrong did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the drama and romance. Oscar and Lucinda is a must see.

Great watching for a rainy Saturday night. A fantasy spun from glass. A complex look at who we are.
